This would require the full data, I looked at it and neither the CVS tree
nor the Web interface has everything.
- the changeset ids are missing, if bk does its renumbering thing
ids in comments become useless
- complete changesets are missing, RCS is quite capable of branches, so
there is no need of merging patches into a single patch.
- merge information is missing, e.g. what branch was merged into which
changeset.

I attached an example RCS file, how that could look like. I had to guess
the merging information and tags are missing.
It would be really useful to have this information as well.
